Took this Burnet county buck around the Burnet/Lampassas county line on January 5th...He had a 13" spread. Any thoughts on age and score?

I don't know the score but that sure is a tall rack. Nice buck.

129 to low 130's. At least 5 and would not be surprised if he 7+.

Looking at the pictures before reading others estimate my guess was 5 to 6 years old. Bet his belly was way lower before the rut.

I'd say 5+ and low 130s. I don't think I've ever seen a whitetail with a rack that tall!

I'd guess 130-35.

Really neat, fully mature deer.

We hunt along that county line also, just a few miles off 183. Comparing your deer to the 4.5 and 5.5 y.o. deer (at least my best guess based on the jawbones) we've taken in that area I'd say he's 5.5. His rack is pretty representative of what we see at that age so I'd guess close to mid-120's gross.

Interested in hearing what you score him at.

Old buck will make a great mount. G2ís are cool guessing right at 130. Nice job

I'm certainly no expert at scoring or aging, but I would have guessed 5.5 at best. My decision was made on no minimal back sway, fairly tight belly and brisket. Since it was after the rut and significant weight loss would have resulted in more loose skin. What am I missing for those estimating way older?
